Garlic, Chilli, Prawns and Zoodles, simple to make. Summer time we love a quick meal that is tasty low calorie and easy to prepare. This recipe uses the Zucchini spaghetti (Zoodles) which is available in Coles, however if you want to carb up you can replace it with normal spaghetti too.

This recipe has 13 grams of carbs and if you use wheat spaghetti, 65 carbs per serve. Try it you will be surprised how yummy Zoodles can be.

Nutritional Facts: Fresh garlic is rich in active compounds such as allicin and allion, with proven natural antiviral and antibacterial properties that can help fight and ward off infections such as the common cold and flu.

Dinner time in summer after a hot day I normally crave for something light, tasty and low on fat.

We found a great recipe from Taste.com for Lemon Chicken Noodle Salad. Now this recipe does require you to marinate the chicken for 30 min before hand, but if you are short on time just through it straight into the wok, still tastes good.

What I do like about the Taste.com recipe they do provide the nutritional value as well. This recipe has 1227 kj or 293 calories so if you are calorie counting it will keep you well in your daily requirements.

When I was searching the web for Healthy Beef Stroganoff, I found this great recipe from Taste.com.

Normally Beef stroganoff is laden with cream and carbs either mash potato, noodle or rice. What I like about this recipe it uses Zucchini noodles and is served with green beans, keeping it low in carbs. The creams is low fat sour cream, so you still get the silkyness of the cream but with less calories.

Easter celebration food like many other occasions throughout the year food plays a major part in the event. Traditionally Easter Sunday marks the end of lent, a period of traditionally 40 days of fasting. In these modern times people choose to give up a favourite food instead. My thoughts would be why not consider giving up alcohol, sugar or smoking for 40 days, these being the biggest contributors to new lifestyle diseases.

But I digress, this article is about Easter Celebration Food. Eggs symbolise rebirth and new life at Easter. Chocolate now is commonly associated with Easter with the first chocolate egg dating back to the early 1800s. When choosing your Easter Eggs this year, go for the highest quality and dark chocolate if available. You will find they are lower in fat than the compound chocolate eggs.

Hot Cross Buns are small spiced buns made with currants or raisins and other dried fruits, marked with a cross on top. These are traditionally eaten on Good Friday. This Easter why not have go in making your own hot cross buns. Try using wholemeal flour as a healthy alternative or limit to just one of these tasty treats.

Roast Lamb is a popular choice for many people especially the Greeks on Easter Sunday.  The tradition of eating roast lamb at Easter comes from the Jewish celebration of Passover, which comes around the same time. Lamb is a great source of protein but can be high in fat so when choosing your lamb consider lamb back strap as it has little or no fat. But if you need to serve a large family the leg of lamb may be the better option. When cooking your leg cook the lamb on a wire rack this will help the fat run off.

Have a Happy Easter!
